Volunteers

Build Community and Get Involved with the City of Greenville



The City of Greenville Public Information and Events department seeks volunteers who are dedicated to making Greenville, SC, a better place to live. We are looking for enthusiastic, positive, hard-working people to help us produce events that align directly with our mission and values. We love working with local non-profits, corporate businesses, schools, churches, individuals and diverse interest groups. We thrive because our volunteers show up and make a difference. The City of Greenville Special Events Department has many opportunities to offer. We do large-scale and small-scale events, and everything in-between.

Group Volunteer Opportunities



The City’s Special Event Department offers organizations and local nonprofits the opportunity to fill key positions at downtown events. In return, volunteer groups collect tips from weekly events (Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive or Greenville Heritage Main Street Fridays) or revenue from Artisphere or Fall for Greenville based on hours worked during the weekend.

Group Requirements


Nonprofit groups are required to be a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with the South Carolina Secretary of State in order to participate. If your group or company is not a registered 501(c)3, you may collect tips or revenue on behalf of a registered 501(c)3 organization. If you wish to apply to volunteer with your organization, please contact the City of Greenville Volunteer Coordinator.
